Azure IoT Edge

Azure IoT Edge moves analytics and logic out of the cloud and onto your on-premises devices. Using a cloud interface, you can deploy either Azure service logic or your own code to devices without having to physically access them. And offline capabilities mean that you can extract business insights anywhere, without worrying about maintaining constant communication with a cloud service.

More details about the services are available in the documentation.

  1. Make IoT-Edge (V2+) usable (again) in products which require both OnPrem and OnDemand deploy

    In many industries (e.g. medical, energy, aeronautics) companies must produce products that can also be installed in environments where no internet connectivity is available/permitted. These same products however, are also often installed in places where they can leverage cloud (OnDemand) capabilities. If IoT-Edge ist to be applicable for such products, it must (by design) provide for:
    1. Installation from download or USB-stick including configuration via config file or local API (as did Edge V1)
    2. Provide and abstraction layer to the external communication (as was done via Edge V1 Modules) enabling a configurable routing to use OnPremises endpoits (REST) or…

  2. Support X.509 certificates in IoT Edge for Raspbian (Linux) and the Device Provisioning Service (DPS)

    We are using a Raspberry Pi Zero W for a large-scale IoT sensor rollout. Our plan is to use IoT Edge on Raspbian (Linux) to run our Python software on the devices and leverage the IoT hub to deploy our code via modules to our devices. We also want to use the IoT hub Device Provisioning Service to further automate the rollout of newly added devices. The goal is to make this scalable to 1.000 devices as a Proof of Concept, and in a production phase scale up to 50.000-100.000 devices.

    We've tried to follow the tutorial by Microsoft to…

  3. Support Ubuntu Core

    Add Ubuntu Core as supported Operating Systems. It is becoming a preferred "secure by default" OS which is preinstalled on many IoT Gateways. E.g. Dell Edge Gateways

  4. More options, or configuration parameters, of storeAndForwardConfiguration

    storeAndForwardConfiguration has a parameter, timeToLiveSecs to specify offline period to retain data.

    Preferable to add following 3 parameters to storeAndForwardConfiguration
    1. Limit the amount of disk usage to be used for SnF feature.
    2. Specify the directory/path of storage for SnF feature
    3. Flush un-forwarded messages in SnF memory out to specified files

  5. (Cloud-triggered) IoT Edge Runtime Updates

    Provide a way of an (automatic) cloud-triggered update mechanism for the IoT Edge Runtime through IoT Hubs Device Management. Providing update capabilities not only for the containers but for the runtime and even the underlying OS is crucial for IoT Scenarios.

  6. Connection of IoT Edge on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS with the IoT Hub

    I tried to set up an IoT Edge device on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and connect it to an IoT Hub. For the installation I followed the steps described here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/iot-edge/how-to-install-iot-edge-linux, what worked perfectly fine. After finishing the installation and filling the connection string into the config.yaml the 'iotedge check' command gave an error thath the Edge Hub cannot bind on ports on host. The reason being was that the container was not automatically started. After talking to the support it turned out that the solution was to deploy some other device (I tried with a simulated temperature sensor), as…

  7. Any plans to support Yocto on ARM32?

    This post: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/iot-edge/support indicates that Yocto on ARM32 is not supported. Will it be? And, if so, will the ARM Python SDK for IoT Edge (suggested here: https://feedback.azure.com/forums/907045-azure-iot-edge/suggestions/34976278-arm-python-sdk-for-azure-iot-edge) work on Yocto?

    We have published preview layers for IoT Edge on Yocto – https://github.com/azure/meta-iotedge. There is still work to be done before this becomes a Tier 1 OS; however you can start playing with it and providing feedback now.

    As far as Python support, you should probably be able to build a Yocto image that supports Python. You’ll have to include the layers required by the Python SDK. This SDK is going through a rewrite at the moment; however you can see a preview at – https://github.com/Azure/azure-iot-sdk-python-preview

  8. IoT edge device getting deleted from azure IoT hub

    My company has a policy to delete IoT device from azure IoT hub if you create it using symmetric key. You have to create the same using certificate. In case of IoT edge device i am getting only symmetric key device creation option only. As a result my IoT edge device getting deleted from azure IoT hub. Please help me on that.

    You can find initial build scripts in the repo for aarch64 support at the link below. That said, it won’t be officially supported until .NET Core, a dependency of Edge Hub and Edge Agent support this architecture. That is something we’re working with them on.
    https://github.com/Azure/iotedge/tree/master/edgelet/build/linux/ubuntu16.04/aarch64

    Our tooling team has also put together a blog post with an example on how to get this working.

  11. Need better parent child relationship with IoT Edge

    • The Parent/Child relationship between edge and leaf devices is too restrictive for our application. We have customers that are load balanced across and within physical locations, and our devices need to roam both with and without internet connectivity. If the child device concept could be extended to contain entire deployment groups based on a certificate chain, that would be preferred. Then each of our customers could have their own intermediate certificate with each of their devices as a leaf; and that intermediate certificate could be tied to each of their Edge appliances

  12. IoT-Edge Windows preview state

    I would like to know if it is already foreseeable when Windows will be officially supported by the IoT Edge Runtime and will leave the preview state? Is it planned to support only x64 or are there versions of IoT Edge runtime planned for x86 or ARM?

    As it is mentioned here, it is still in preview: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/iot-edge/how-to-install-iot-edge-windows

    We want to GA IoT Edge on Windows as quickly as possible. The majority of the feature work has been completed; however there have been some stability issues in the past couple releases as we move from Hyper-V isolated containers to process isolated containers.

  13. Allow installation of IOT Edge (runtime) on Windows to a different directory and drive location.

    In an enterprise environment we are often restricted to where we are allowed to install software. For example all installed software should be on the D drive in Programs directory.

    This is currently not possible with the iot edge runtime without modifying the IOT Edge standard installation scripts.

  15. Installing IoT Edge Runtime on Core OS.

    CoreOS is one of the popular container OS in the market.It will be great idea to install Azure IoT Edge Runtime(EdgeAgenet,EdgeHub,iotedged bootstrap security daemon) on Core OS.

    As per https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/iot-edge/support#operating-systems CoreOS is neither in Tier-1 nor tier-2 OS list for IOT EDGE RUNTIME.

  19. Provision of IoT Edge Security Damon package for Tire 2 system

    For the Tier 1 system, the latest IoT Edge Security Damon package is provided in the package repository (https://packages.microsoft.com/)
    But for the Tire 2 system, it is not provided.
    For example, for Ubuntsu 18.04 of Tire 1, iotedge_1.0.4-1_amd64.deb is provided, Regarding Debian 9, it still iotedge_1.0.0-1_amd64.deb yet.
    Our products use Debian 9, and we are asked to provide packages that fix bugs from customers.
    We will to build it localy and provide it at our own repository, What do you think?

  20. Azure IoT Edge Tier 1 support for Ubuntu running on ARM32

    ARM32 is by far the most popular hardware platform for edge devices, because of low cost and high reliability.

    Ubuntu Core is growing in popularity. (https://www.ubuntu.com/download/iot)

    It is surprising to me that there is no Tier 1 support for Ubuntu Core and ARM32.

    I think that Tier 1 support for the most popular HW-SW combination would be a win-win, for Microsoft and for IoT OEMs.

    Supporting Ubuntu Core is of interest for us; however there are other OS that we’re prioritizing higher. For example:

    • supporting CentOS provides installers for all RPM based Linux systems.
    • supporting Yocto is necessary for folks creating custom images for small devices.
      I anticipate that we’ll get to Ubuntu Core once some of these other systems have been supported.
